Need to replace the stock Michelin tires that came on my 2012 Camry L. Not impressed that they only lasted 22K with regular rotations. Any ideas? DTC wants to sell me Kunhos

Michelin Premier A/S all the way.

I have Kumho’s on my Sonata and they’re good too, though. But I will replace with the Michelin’s.

With it not being a "high" performance vehicle, nor any off-road capabilities, you could use any standard tire. Being in Florida you won't need all-season but might want something with good wet traction. Then there's budget, you can probably get a set for anywhere from $300 to $700.

Michelin makes good tires but it might be that Toyota just requested a low end model to reduce their costs. Kumho are fair quality at a good price, but will be out performed by higher priced Michelins.

Don't let the original tires affect your decision making, the OEM tires that came on the car will be different than even the same exact tire model that you buy aftermarket. The OEM tires are built for very specific priorities, of which tire life isn't very high.

The online collective seems to really like the General AltiMAX RT43 as a very good value.

On a very similar vehicle (Lex ES), I have been impressed with Cooper's value line for wear and performance. The Mastercraft Strategy has saved us a lot of money at the rate they are wearing. Wet performance is critical here and that matters to you, too. He's what I said before:

They may be no better than the General recommended, but it's something else to put head-to-head with them.

Most OE tires don't last that long. Remember, OE tires are not the same as aftermarket tires like you'd get from Tire Rack, DT/DTD, Walmart, or your favorite tire shop, even when they share the same name. For example, Michelin Primacy MXM4 from TR is not the same as the "same" Primacy MXM4 that originally came on the car.

Your tire size is 205/65-16, right?

The RT43 is very popular on here, and so is the Cooper CS5 Ultra

Another good tire worth looking at is the Falken Ziex ZE950

Yokohama tires are great quality and very reasonably prices, so is Pirelli and Cooper.

I have 27k of the energy saver AS tires on my accord and they barely show wear. I'm happy. The primacy mxv4 on our Odyssey are the same condition. They were 7.5/32 at 24k when I measured them last. Something isn't right with your car.
